  1. Vento will not come with DSG Auto Gearbox, Instead 6-Speed Conventional Automatic is coming, alongwith Manual versions. Yes,Its a normal auto box not a DSG. They say bookings in all over India will officially start in few days and pricing will be announced in coming days.Deliveries will start by third week of september. VW Vento has the longest wheelbase in the segment (when compared to ANHC,SX4,Verna) and the smallest turning radius. Pricing will be competitive as most of its parts will be made India unlike Polo. Colors- Red, White, Silver, Black, Beige, Shadow Blue(already in Jetta). tappet2010-08-11 16:34:43

  10. ZigWheels has confirmed reports of a new Bajaj performance bike which is through with its development and testing phase and is ready to be launched before the end of this month! Details are thin and speculative, but we'd like to take our gamble and say that this will in all likelihood be a new bike from the company's Pulsar range. Given that the company has recently launched an upgraded 2009 version of the Pulsar 180 DTSi, we'd also go a step further to speculate that the new bike is likely to be aimed at a segment higher than this in terms of performance. source-zigwheels.com
  11. why? how you doubt..i dont understand ..you think kms is more?
  12. RTR 180 launched today..Rs 63,990 Ex delhi...top speed of 125kmph..0-60kmph in 4.15 sec..(TVS claimed)...i want to see a performance comparo between RTR180 vs R15 vs Karizma.
  13. yes...the delivery guys dont care about the customers bike.get the bike delivered yourself.you will not have any problem riding your bike with TR..but dont ride the bike for more kilometers till u get permanent no after registration..try not to go more than 50km..once i was stopped by a cop in chennai..i was in my new unregistered bike..the cop asked me how many kms i have ridden so far..i said 20..then he said , registration wil not be done if i ride more than 50kms.
  14. TVS Apache RTR 180 has been launched today..it is as powerful as R15..do a test ride on it and then decide..
